Here you will find resources that cover the development of analyses for jamovi (and R). It’s still a work in progress, and we’ll be adding to it over time, but the current tutorial series has everything you need to get up and running.
In addition, there is a comprehensive overview over the API for module development:
If you have questions about developing modules for jamovi, or feedback on how we can improve the developer hub, we’re keen to hear from you. There are forums available at forum.jamovi.org, a communication platform at jamovi.slack.com or you can reach out via e-mail to contact <at> jamovi.org.
For those interested in the jamovi platform, it is hosted on GitHub. Don’t forget to ‘star’ us!
Underneath, you will find further information about the structure of the project, the jamovi-file-format and possible projects for the Google Summer of Code:
We’ve refined the advanced UI customization in jamovi 1.0.4 and newer. This is not backwards compatible, so we discourage its use in existing modules for the time being (Until the 1.0.4+ is is in broader use). People developing or releasing modules for the first time are encouraged to make use of it.
We’ve added a new document to our tutorial series describing how jamovi analyses can use state. State is used with longer running analyses, and allows the analysis to re-use results that were calculated previously. This can lead to much faster analyses, and a much nicer user experience.
20-04-2017: Changes to dev tools for jamovi 0.7.3
We’ve just released a beta of jamovi 0.7.3, which brings some significant improvements, and minor changes to developing jamovi modules.
Changes to dependency resolution
In the past, we’re had a number of difficulties with dependency resolution for jamovi modules. Sometimes jmvtools would install more dependencies than were necessary, and other times not enough. This stemmed from contamination of the R library path, from R packages installed on the system. In this release we’ve successfully isolated the system libraries from the jmvtools, and only the required dependencies will now be installed.
.u.yaml-files (the UI definition) were automatically generated from
.a.yaml-files (the analysis definition). This was sometimes problematic when additional changes were made to the
.a.yaml-files. It wasn’t always clear which changes should be propagated to the
.u.yaml-files, and which should not.
In the 0.7.3, the
.u.yaml-files work together. The
.u.yaml-file, by default, contains minimal information (mostly just describing the layout), and the property values, for example labels, are taken directly from the
.a.yaml-file. For many people, they will only need to edit the
.a.yaml-file, and jmvtools can take care of the
.u.yaml-file itself. More documentation for UI Design will be coming soon.
.u.yaml-files using this new scheme will have the
jus, near the top of the file, specified as
.u.yaml-files using the older
1.0will be automatically upgraded. Upgraded files will be placed in
compilerMode(explained next), you may want to change it to
compilerMode: aggressive vs tame
jmvtools also introduces a new option in
compilerMode. By default,
.u.yaml-files are created in
aggressivemode. This means that
jmvtoolswill take a heavy handed approach when updating the
.u.yaml-files. If new options are added to the
.a.yaml-file, it will aggressively add them into the
.u.yaml-file, overwriting any manual changes.
In contrast, the
tamedoes not overwrite manual changes in the
u.yaml-file. The trade off is that it often can’t position UI elements as optimally.
We recommend beginning with your
aggressive, and when you begin to refine your UI by adding custom changes to your
.u.yaml-files swap over to
tameso that your changes are preserved. Again, for a lot of people,
aggressivemode will be all that they will ever need.
For the time being, changes to the
.a.yamland / or the
.u.yaml-files, will still require you to shut jamovi down and restart it before you’ll see the changes to the UI. We hope to fix this issue in the next few weeks.
On windows, jmvtools is still not able to find the jamovi installation by default. You will still need to pass the
homeoption, or set the
02-04-2017: Added dev mode to jamovi 0.7.2.7
jamovi 0.7.2.7 Adds dev mode, providing a stack trace when an analysis errors for whatever reason. The tutorial has been updated to describe this: Debugging an analysis.
